Repairing Damage Extends Beyond Collision

Without question, the majority of the repair work we do is for vehicles that have been damaged as a result of a collision. But, if you read your insurance policy or talk to any agent, you will soon find out that this not all damage is covered by collision coverage.

Recently, with all of the wind we have had in the Cecil County area, we have had a number of phone calls for repair work resulting from fallen trees and limbs. This sort of damage is covered by comprehensive coverage. Damage from falling limbs, fire, theft, vandalism and other causes are categorized under comprehensive loss. Though the repair process for these is the same, dealing with your insurance company may not — so it is always important to know what coverage you have on your policy, preferably well in advance of ever having to file a claim.

Regardless of what you drive or what led to your vehicle’s damage, there is no shop better suited to repair your damage, than Purnell Body Shop. Trust our estimators, body techs and paint professionals for the best auto body repair in Cecil County and beyond.
